ok
come here you
what?
I want you to be my love slave
yes master oh you ???
who me?
it goes both ways
it does?
mmm yeah.
I'm gonna be your love slave?
uh-huh

stood near the cage of the prize-fighting cock
the sun cut through the clouds but the air pressure dropped
and I touched your hair for the very first time
I have that moment with me now
it's all mine
and you
showed me a thing or two about power in its purest form

a few minutes later you went back inside
and I stood near the clothesline where strips of beef dried
hanging in the noon-day sun
flies were buzzing nearby
and then your face in the window caught my eye
and you
showed me a thing or two about power in its purest form

things don't look much different now from where I stand
looking for you with camera in hand
someone's gone away
and someone's gotten taller
but the world stopped turning and the universe is much smaller
since you
showed me a thing or two about power in its purest form
yeah you
showed me a thing or two about power in its purest form

    General CommentApparently, power in its purest form is the ability to transfigure moments. Which makes a lot of sense, and fits in nicely with the detail-oriented Mountain Goats style of songwriting. I really like this song, partly because of the love-slave jocularity in the beginning, and partly because I first heard it while on a desperate adventure up and down the East Coast of the USA with a junkie I was in love with back in 2013.
